    Default Graff Faucet

    I am interested in a bathroom vanity which is shown with a Graff "Perfeque" faucet, G-1700-LM3-PC. I like it but don't know anything about it. Can anyone tell me anything about it?
    Thanks,
    Bob

    I see that they are an OEM manufacturer. Based on the sales locations described, they are sold by high end design studios. I would refer to them as a "boutique" company, but from the Website, it looks like they are international and a large company. Nonetheless, the same could have been said for Broadway Faucets, and people who purchased them ( paid huge $$$$ for them!) are now up a creek.

    Without any further knowledge, I would go to the largest plumbing supplier in your region. Ask if they stock, or know how to obtain, repair parts for the Graff brand. Then ask the company you are buying from what their warranty policy is and if they assist in getting repairs done. Finally, contact Graff ( www.graff-faucets.com) and ask them about warranties and parts down the line.

    They are probably great faucets. I would like to know what you are paying for one. You will find that most plumbers here on the forums always recommend the mainstream brands. This is because it is a known quantity. We know how to put them together and take them apart. Because of the huge population of Deltas, PP, AmStd, Moen...... parts are widely available, even at the corner hardware store or the box stores. We probably have the part you need ON THE TRUCK....so you aren't paying labor cost for a parts run, and don't have to be without a faucet for 5 to 20 days while parts are ordered.

    If the Mrs. has fallen in love with a faucet, there's no going back! My personal advice is always to buy 2.......the second one will be your parts supply.

    Post Graff Faucets

    Hi Guys,
    Just a little history lesson, Graff has been an AMERICAN OEM manufacturer of plumbing since 1922. I am sure all of us have installed many of their products unknowingly. Graff manufactured parts and whole units for the top American and European companies until they took their business to Asia in the late 90s. That is when Graff developed their own line. The products are in stock in Mikwaukee and everything has a lifetime warrenty. Don't be fooled by the other so-called American companies who are getting all their parts from the sweat shops of Asia. Thanks for the forum.

    Best regards,
